Opinion| There is a quote we like to repeat around here, and it goes as follows: “When someone shows you who they are … believe them!”
The newly uncloaked Democrats are demanding “not one dollar” of funding be allotted to the Department of Homeland Security.
Now, if someone refuses to provide funding for the security of the homeland, what would that make them? Where is the MSM calling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), “agents of Putin?”
If Russia is out enemy, as the media and the Democrats want to dearly for us to believe, wouldn’t they too want us not to fund the security of the homeland? Does this not make the afore mentioned Congresswomen, Russian stooges, weather willingly or not?
From Free Beacon:
Progressive members of Congress are pressuring their colleagues to cut funding for the Department of Homeland Security, threatening another government shutdown.
A copy of the “dear colleague” letter circulated from Reps. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.), Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.), and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) details their demands concerning homeland security, the Daily Beast first reported Thursday. A member of Omar’s staff confirmed the letter’s authenticity in an email to the Washington Free Beacon.
The letter was distributed to the members of the bipartisan, bicameral committee responsible for reaching an arrangement to fund the government for the rest of fiscal year 2019.
Chicks On The Right Comment: “The group is claiming that the DHS is not reporting deaths in a timely manner, avoiding congressional oversight and that their funds are being used for other federal projects.
The group is also upset that the DHS dares to “prosecute immigrants who are part of the fabric of our community.”
How dare DHS prosecute illegal aliens! For shame! Stop enforcing laws, we say! “In solidarity.”
“With the world watching and the lives of families at stake, we should not compromise our values at the negotiating table,” they argue.
Wouldn’t denying DHS money not only harm Americans and actually cut off the ability to properly care for illegal aliens who are in DHS custody?”
If anyone is working towards the ideal of our enemies, is it not those who seek to undermine our defenses, the protection of America itself? If these Democrats are not working for the protection of our nation … who are they working for?
